Ramsbeck mining trail

With a length of approx. 9 km, which can be hiked in three separate legs, the trail passes all essential relicts of the former lead- and zinc mine. Signs have been set up at prominent points, giving information in written or picture form or explaining still existing monuments, buildings, mining galleries and relicts.
